July 30, 2018, MONCTON (GNB) — Maritime Door and Window Ltd., a manufacturer and retailer in Moncton, is undertaking a $150,000 capital expansion with support from the provincial government. The expansion will result in the creation of six new full-time jobs.
“Supporting job creation and economic growth have been priorities for your government over each of the last four years,” said Finance Minister Cathy Rogers. “The New Brunswick Economic Growth Plan calls for strategic investments to support the expansion of successful companies like Maritime Door and Window, which has a successful record of growth. This is an example of how we are getting things done on behalf of working families in Moncton and across the province.”
The investment will be used to acquire, implement and train employees in the use of new software systems. The company currently employs 54 people in Moncton.
“Having expanded from our origins as a manufacturer to become a successful retailer and service provider, it is important that we continue to evolve and innovate,” said Mike Mann, company president and CEO. “We are extremely grateful to the province, and to the team at Opportunities NB, for their support of our capital projects. We pride ourselves on providing exceptional service to our customers, and the addition of these new employees and software systems will make a big difference in that regard.”
In support of its expansion, the company is eligible for a non-repayable contribution of $52,900 from Opportunities NB, which is a Crown corporation that works to attract and support opportunities to grow the economy and create jobs. It provides support services for businesses across the province.
Opportunities NB estimates that the newly created jobs would contribute $555,000 to the province’s GDP on a yearly basis and generate $60,000 in provincial taxes over the same period.
